of the state department has issued a report on the events that took place in benghazi, september 11 of this year. i think it is excellent. there are other committees in congress that have begun other investigations and i think that each of these will contribute to our understanding of what happened in benghazi and help to make sure that nothing like it happens again. under the senate rules, our committee has a special responsibility for oversight. as i said, for the interaction of different agencies of government, it is through that lens that after the tragic events of benghazi on such a member leventhal, the senator and i began our investigation. obviously we were time limited by the end of this year and end of this congress, the end of my service here. i am grateful not only to the senator for once again the extraordinary by partisanship we have had, but also our staffs who have worked together for well. they really work through the holiday when i must ask for my benghazi team to come down to our first floor office. the numbers were smaller than they had been earlier, but they had

to close down the cia annex in benghazi? >> reporter: it's worth contrasting the status of the consulate with that. while the consulate site has never been secured, fox news is told that the cia annex in benghazi was shuttered by september 12th less than 24 hours after the attack. all classified information was removed or pwurpbld. burned. the decision to close down the annex same at 5:15 local time when the annex took fire from two mortars. the process began the night before after the consulate was attacked in the evening hours. the initial stages of the agency's proscribed evacuation kicked in as a cautionary step. once it was clear they could not sustain their position that was wrapped up and they were able to get everything out, classified information, either moved or destroyed by about 7:00am local time. so the contrast is that within hours the cia was able to close down their operation, and that consulate has never been secured by any u.s. personnel, jon. jon: and it's almost three months later and still all of these questions. >> reporter: that's correct, uh-huh. jon: thank you, c
is a difficult transition. libya, we obviously know what happened there at benghazi and a country that is unstable. even tunisia isn't doing that well. when you have crisis and chaos there isn't an opportunity for american leadership. what you would need is a president who would have the grand strategy for what do i want to see happen in the world in the next four years and how am i going to get there? >> the strategy seems to be america withdrawal and retreat in the world. we are r going to cut the gash and the defense budget and we are pulling out of afghanistan. we are already out of iraq. we have add do indicated doing anything in syria. the message around the world is that the u.s. is going to be much -- it is going to lead a lot less i than it has. >> we had the right strategy. we could have the right strategy and there isn't an opportunity. >> in the 1920s it game clear that the victorious powers of the united states, france, britain weren't prepared to enforce the global order that they had imposed at thefo versailles settlement. and it became obvious to countries like ge

those attacks in egypt and is reportedly linked with the storming of the u.s. consulate in benghazi on september 11th. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton is expected to testify on the libya attack after an independent review board finishes its report. >> so we have every expectation that she will testify, that she will do so in an open setting, and that perhaps the leaders of the report, the lead investigators, may be testifying before us in a closed setting. >> senator john kerry, the chirm of the senate foreign relations committee, says secretary clinton will also appear before that panel. >>> and closer to home now, president obama has asked congress for $60 billion. that's in aide to help with superstorm sandy's cleanup in all states. the request comes in the midst of a tough fiscal cliff fight and house speaker john boehner says they will review the request by the president. new york and new jersey originally asked for a combined $79 billion in aide. the states' governors say they are grateful for any help. >>> the supreme court taking up the controversial issue of g
